Ssoooo i just took my car in for a carbon buildup clean. It had gotten pretty bad i had really rough cold starts the engine clearly was pretty bad and had never been cleaned and it is at 93,000 miles now. I got charged $1800 for a carbon clean, fuel injector clean and camshaft sensor replacement. Does this sound about right cause i am a woman with a high maintenance car and i feel like I've been scammed a bit quite a few times by now

Seems ridiculously expensive. Even overpriced dealers charge around 900-1000$ for a carbon clean. I’m pretty sure the sensor is accessible when you have the manifold off to do the cleaning anyway. Maybe I’m mistaken, but seems way overpriced. Post your location and I’m sure someone here can give you a good local recommendation.

You should expect to pay between 850-1000 usd for a proper carbon removal job

I know shops that do it for 400$CAD as good as doing it for 1000$USD... I got CC done on my 11'GTI for 500$CAD in 2017, but I found another VW/Audi specialized shop that will do it for 400$CAD, planning to get it cleaned again at 200,000KM, and new fuel injectors.
